Hello everyone - We are Push Merchandising!
We're a big happy (slightly dysfunctional) family and ShotDeadInTheHead is the by-product of our collective creative juices. Our purpose in life is to deliver our extended family (that's you lot) high quality, exclusive and unique products that allow you to share your passions and show the rest of us that you're well and truly different.
As we like to say, "If You Care, Wear!"
Now then, if you're still reading, that means you probably want to get to know us a little bit better. Read on and remember that everything we say is backed by our legendary 90 Day No Quibble Guarantee. No seriously - it is.
"Sweatshirt arrived in the post this morning. Fantastic quality and a perfect fit. Very many thanks."Nigel - Purchased from ShotDeadInTheHead
Here's five things you need to know about us:
We treat people as we would like to be treated ourselves.
We are a family business that sells over 100,000 garments worldwide every single year. We've been able to do this because we care deeply about the quality of our products and about offering exemplary customer service.
We've also been around for a really long time.
shotdeadinthehead.com sold its first t-shirt in 2005 and in the following years it has been consistently called out by the press for design gems such as 'Make Bono History', 'Jack Bauer Wouldn't Stand For This Shit' and our hugely successful 'Built In' range.
"Great t-shirt, gets lots of attention."Mr James Holt - Purchased from Amazon
Every product we sell is special.
There's nothing worse than a shirt that shrinks after its first tour of duty in the laundry. Maybe that's acceptable for a nine quid shirt that'll last for one trip down the local boozer, but it's not for something you really care about. We make sure we always provide our designs on super high-quality garments using the very latest digital printing techniques.
We care about the safety of your information.
Our parent outfit (Push Media Ventures) owns the company that manages and controls the safety of websites for premiere music acts such as Katy Perry, Mumford and Sons and 5SOS. This means we understand how to build websites that ensure your personal information is as safe as the crown jewels (Disclaimer: we do use less Beefeaters however). We also use PayPal for processing all sale transactions - a company that needs no introduction.
Did we mention...
We've got a legendary 90 Day No Quibble Guarantee?!
"Just letting you know that I'm thrilled with the replacement shirt and with the way you've handled the return, I'll spread the word!"Deb Atkinson - Purchased from Amazon
So what's up with the site name -- ShotDeadInTheHead?
Put simply, it doesn't mean we don't care, because we do. But if the world was full of individuals with the same sanitised points of view, it'd be pretty boring, right?
It's best to think of us as being a late night HBO or Channel 4 TV show - it's safe bet that you'll hit upon crude language, risqué concepts and stuff you generally wouldn't want your old Gran to watch.
We humbly reserve our right to have an opinion, to sometimes offend, and for our customers to shop elsewhere if they don't like what they see. But given the popularity of the site, our social media stuff and most of all, our customer feedback, it's pretty clear that we're doing something right. Poke around, have a laugh, and don't take it too seriously. As the learned Robbie Williams once said, "Let me (and by me, we mean us) entertain you!".
"Great t-shirt, well made and arrived very quickly, seems well made, very happy."Brenda Colligan - Purchased from Amazon
And now a word about the company founders...
Simon Scott and Ian Shurmer met in the early 90's and worked together at AMXdigital (one of the UK's first Internet companies). Subsequent years would see them work for leading technology and advertising outfits, including stints in Silicon Valley.
When the time came to start their own business, they decided to create a company that would be underpinned by corporate professional experience, but which was driven by a strong sense of family oriented ethics; no one should have to miss out on their kids growing up.
Their two companies, Push Entertainment and Push Merchandising have global clients and partners in the world of entertainment including Universal Music, HBO, Warner Music, Disney and Random House.
